Theory: No Escape decks usually struggle early game, if they can get to their in mid-game moves, they fare much better. (EDIT: Phone auto correct)

Hypothesis - Sid has a lot of Fortitude reduction, let's see how he plays No Escape.

Turns out the deck did rather well.  4-2 overall in the recent OCTGN tournament.  Defeated Yokozuna, Johnny Gargano, Braun Strowman, and BFM.  Lost to BFM and Pete Dunne.

Every game except Gargano was a grinder game - you work your way up the maneuver latter by hook (Maneuvers landing) or crook (Fortitude reduction).  No Escape closes off some options of reversing to them - most importantly the BL deck, and with Sid's ability to semi-scramble the hand, it makes redwalling him harder.  From Wherever He Pleases + Sycho Choke Slam are your recovery.  The Gargano matchup was just an old school Raw Deal game - I had the reversals, he didn't.  The two losses - the BFM deck was probably a better grinder deck, but I split on one of the flukier endings to a Raw Deal game I have ever seen.  The Dunne match, he was able to out-value me in a long (2.5 hour) game.

Post-tournament - the only obvious cuts for me are Escape the Rules and Pencil-Necked Geek.  Neither saw any use.  The rest is debatable - heavily thinking about removing One! and On-One Arena too, but not sure what I'd add there.   I'd like a TB Sucker Punch and an Eat Your Words in the deck in the future, but not sure what I'd remove for them.

Happy to hear any suggestions or ways to make the deck better.

General Chat / [Spoilers] Persona 5 Royal
« on: March 31, 2020, 07:48:11 AM »
Yeah, so for those that don't know, I'm a HUGE Persona game fan. I played Persona 1 when it first came out, I'm inches away from the true ending of P4 (haven't played P4 Golden because no PSVita...), and I've invested at least 200 hours into Persona 5 on PS3 when I acquired it.  Every trophy achieved. 

So of course I ordered P5R at the first opportunity and it showed up for me yesterday.  I'm only 6 hours in, but it already feels like a whole different gaming experience.  There's too much here to be specific about the totality of the change, but some of the biggest QoL changes so far:
1) Gun ammo refills after every battle, which is a HUGE QoL upgrade.  In P5, you had basically two clips worth of ammo for your guns and that was it for the whole Palace.  You're now down to one clip, but it refills every battle.
2) I've only done two confidant-type things so far (Death and Chariot) but both already have had scenes added onto their relationship-building events.  Also somewhat related:
3) Atlus took note of what I feel were the two most glaring problems in the early game - the lack of available money and the lack of SP recovery in palaces.  The addition of Will Seeds, along with a couple of tweaks to some of the early game stuff, and the Death confidant may actually pay you for your killing yourself. 
4) Addressing another minor problem, the tweak to "high-level" Shadows really gets you a better chance at getting appropriate armor (albeit at the cost of doing more laundry...) or at the worst gives you more money when you sell the things.

For those that may be playing, I'm curious if you have any thoughts

Virtual Raw Deal / 2020 Bottom of the Barrel Thread
« on: December 30, 2019, 09:49:14 AM »
As a designer of cards, I usually have a lot of my focus on the top-end of the Raw Deal metagame when comparing and contrasting superstars with one another.  Example - for the Then/Now/Forever set, I asked myself things like "is Pete Dunne Tier 1?", or "what's the optimal Jim Cornette build?".  Every now and again, though, I like to take my focus off of the top of the mountain and see who's at the bottom with no hope of climbing.  That's where I'd like to ask for assistance from the guys and gals that make up the Raw Deal universe.

I'd like you guys and gals to tell me who are, in your opinion, the "bad" superstars in Raw Deal.  Those that, no matter what is done with them, are just not cut out to win matches consistently.  So we can keep this orderly and track able, I'd like everyone to keep the following in mind:

1) I'm looking for between 1 and 3 superstars that, in your opinion, just don't have the ability to "cut it" in Raw Deal these days.  If there's more, put 'em down.

2) Reasons and/or constructive criticism would be helpful so we can understand why the superstar is "bad". 

3) Please keep in mind that personal attacks or other breaches of TCO's rules will not be tolerated.  This is not an excuse to reach out and flame someone on how a superstar is designed.

To give an example, I'll put one down I've had in the back of my head to start this off (and yes I know I'm wordy, you don't have to be as in depth):

Rene Dupree - Despite an early hand advantage through Pre-Match cards like Managed by Fifi and It's Hard Being This Original, if Rene can't take that early advantage into an insurmountable lead, he'll eventually be ground to dust.  Also, AIUU's discard text has lost a lot of power since all Rookie/NXT superstars are immune to it.  Everyone around him does what he does but better - British Bulldog has no pack restriction can take Backlash cards from his Ring as well as Backlash and recover, Latino Cheat can pack the normal compliment of reversals (his restriction is on playing more than one, not packing more than one) and has a superior give-back of searching for cards instead of drawing. 

Looking forward to hear who you think is the bottom of the barrel going into 2020.

The Short List (from comments below):
Rene Dupree
Yokozuna
Honky Tonk Man
Bam Bam Bigelow
Dean Malenko
Emma
Ted DiBiase Jr

Classic Raw Deal / RD In Raleigh?

Rules Forum / Gallows and Anderson question
« on: November 26, 2018, 08:53:33 AM »
GALLOWS & ANDERSON
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 3
Tag Team Superstar Ability: When your opponent plays a maneuver, you may overturn 5 cards and his maneuver loses any reversal restrictions from a card.
When you have fewer cards in hand and lower Fortitude, and your first card played on your turn is a maneuver, he can only play 1 reversal to it.
You cannot pack any Title Belts except the Tag Team Title Belts.

Can you activate the bolded even if the maneuver played does not have any reversal restrictions from a card? 

This was relevant at the time because the overturn 5 would have given me the 20 in Ringside to stuff the Maneuver of Doom, which had no card-based reversal restrictions.

General Chat / General Marvel Questions
« on: May 08, 2017, 08:13:27 AM »
So, uh, I had some questions about the current MCU which don't necessarily have to do with Guardians specifically, so I figured I'd break out my own thread here.  Maybe some spoilers if you haven't seen the movies to this point, so spoiler space is below first.

















1) The after-credits scene of Dr. Strange with Thor - when we last saw Thor, he was leaving Asgard to Odin (who was really Loki in disguise).  When Thor talks with Dr. Strange, he's looking for his father with Loki?  Do we know how that happened as yet, or are we supposed to be in the dark?

2) The Infinity Stones - where are they now?  Kind of a confirmation, but here goes.
-Tesseract aka Space Stone - Asgard vault.
-Mind Stone - Vision's head, on Earth
-Aether aka Reality Stone - Knowhere with The Collector (or maybe Thanos?  Per end-credtis scene from Thor: Dark World, it looks like The Collector is working with Thanos.)
-Power Stone - Xandar, NovaCorps possession
-Eye of Agamoto aka Time Stone - Earth, Kamar-taj Sanctum, Library
-Soul Stone - not yet appeared in the films

On the bolded - is the order that I put back the cards specifically as listed, or can I do it the way I'd like to do? 

Example:

I have 3 cards in Arsenal and at least Divine in hand.  I use my ability (Overturn 3) and want to put Divine back in my deck from my hand.  Does the card from my hand always have to be the first card in the stack?  Or can I put my RFG'd card back to the bottom first, then the Divine from hand, then the Ringside card, so that I draw the RFG'd card with the conclusion of my SSA?

Tournament Reports / Allentown July Tournament Report - Ladies' Night
« on: July 11, 2016, 05:57:05 AM »
So our monthly theme this time for the Allentown tournament was "Ladies night" meaning only Female Superstars allowed.

I had a pretty nasty X-Diva deck that I built that just removed all the cards from the game.  Dallas, nWo Poison, Volley Trait, and Superstar ability combined with Hello Ladies x a lot to survive the beatings and Edge on the Competition/DLB TB to get to the necessary 4F to sponge if needed.  My first impression on that was that if the meta was slanted heavily in the Diva move department, I would be able to crush decks, removing as many cards from the game as I would take damage for things like Mod Clutch.

But that was like the no-fun type of deck, and we're trying to have a more fun atmosphere at these Allentown tournaments.  I had two other decks, but one was Dynamic AJ Lee and CRASHER was running the OS Cage, so that tossed that deck out the window (though the side game I had was fun).  So that left me with one female option:  Molly Holly Chain.  This was a science experiment to see how useful Break You was (short answer: no) as well as test a Superstar I had been meaning to try out for a while. 

I think this could do very well in a real tournament where I would switch from FF to Cheater and from Step/Escape/Reach/Sell to Revo and toolbox cards, but planning for Diva moves I was Fan Favorite for Great To Be Back, and adjusted the deck accordingly.

Superstar distribution:
Molly Holly - me
Beth Phoenix x 2 - CRASHER and dilbert505
Nikki Bella TB - Mull (no TCO name)
Christy - RomeyTang
Sasha Banks - JarekMace4
Trish Stratus - king1050
Maryse - Omniuma06
Stacy Kiebler - Ray (no known TCO name)


Round 1:
Mull (Nikki TB)
Unfortunately Mull had to be DQ'd.  He had switched Nikki at the last minute from Heel to BASH, and he forgot to take Unscrup and Volley this out.  I let the Unscrup go, since it was still in the pre (I Want to Play The Game is t3h r0xxor for Molly), but the Volley This's were too much.  We fixed his deck and played a fun side game with AJ Lee vs. Nikki, where random is the name of the game and AJ falls down at the altar of McMahon-ism, but that was cut short by round 2.

1-0

Round 2:
Crasher (Beth Phoenix)
Crasher got out of the gate strong, but he exhausted his hand trying to keep me off the board.  I eventually punched through, but he had a Shoot on the board.  Molly's Face Stretch helped to reduce his hand even further, and I continued to chip away being careful not to run into Shoot Counter.  After all the Skirts were played and he had no hand left, he overturned Divine on his last card, and knowing I didn't have anything left to throw at him (and knowing he likely had a Trevor Murdoch or that Beth move that flies in from Ringside) and knowing he had a Shoot in ring when I had less than 6 cards in ring, I took the CO. 

2-0

Round 3:
Omniuma06 (Maryse)
Maryse cycles like a woman posessed - she basically got all the good cards she needed in her had by just constantly ability-ing.  But Maryse was also Hard Being Original, which meant one Once from hand, one Sloppy, and one of a couple of other cards that were relevant to my interests.  Maryse started quick - she jumped on me with the WIcked Slap and the TKO Kick as reversals - but I battled back slowly with Holly Family Values, Bald Is Beautiful, Calvary, and moves in general.  It also helped that his Blindside Tornado Strike got stuck on Hitting the G Spot, so he couldn't reset his reversals.  After the Skirt hit the table, Settle Down, Son wiped his hand out, and then he got Molly's Face Stretched to death.

3-0

Round 4:
Ray (Stacy Kiebler)
He gave me the win, basically locking us into a duel for top 2.

4-0

Finals:
Ray (Stacy Kiebler)
He knew Break You was in the Pre (we had talked deck strategy pre-event) so he played around it.  I made the stupid mistake of reversing the Flawless/Quick Snap because I wanted to keep my Backlash deck intact (he was Cena enforcer), and he just ran me after that.

4-1

Congrats to Ray, first tournament back after a long hiatus and he rolled face.

My experiments proved that:
1) While Break You in Molly is "the dream", I'm not sure how real the dream is.  2 BASH decks, 2 Undisputed Title TB decks.  It just wasn't meant to be today.  BUT...
2) ...Fans Love an Underdog TB was the real-real.  Used it twice, and probably would have used it a third time if Ray knew that his Undisputed Title wiped out my Break You (he was playing around it in the Pre). 
3) All four games, I chose to dump Bald into my Ring for Hair Razing, and it was only a debate once, against Beth and her cavalcade of Multis (I still maintain I made the better choice by dumping Bald in).  The ability to swap into a useful ability is so huge - all three came in use today.
4) We have a lot of guys that are willing to go out on a limb and try something new and see how it goes, which is great.  HBO Maryse, Smackdown Trish, 2 Beth Phoenix's - in a tournament where I expected to play 4 rounds and see 12 Mod Clutches, I think it was closer to 3, which is awesome.  People thinking outside the box is always good for these kinds of fun tournaments.
5) Props to king1050 for his monthly contrubition to the local Raw Deal community - it is much appreciated.

Our next tournament will be announced by king1050, but the format will be Virtual NXT.  Hope to see everyone there.

Pre-match Event
Can be played during any Pre-match phase. Cannot be blanked.  Your cards with 'break you', 'interest', or 'switcheroo' in the title are blank.
Until the first turn of the game, your opponent's non-Superstar-specific Pre-match effects cannot blank your non-Stipulation cards, discard cards from your hand or Backlash, move cards from your Ring, reduce your Starting Hand Size, or prevent you from playing Pre-match cards.

On This Day, I See Clearly
Pre-match Event
Your opponent cannot prevent you from playing this card.
Your Unique cards are also titled Roll Out of the Ring and Big Slide in the Ring for your Edge-specific card effects.  Your non-Smackdown Edge-specific Actions are F: 0 and Permanent.
ACE: When your Edge-specific card is unsuccessful, choose either 2 non-reversal cards or up to 1 card in your Ringside and shuffle it into your Arsenal; when that card was a non-Smackdown action, you may put it into your Ring and then discard 1 card.

The bolded words "that card".  Does that refer to the unsuccessful Edge-specific card or one of the card(s) chosen to be shuffled into your Arsenal?

Seriously, 27 was a good year, I'd go back to that in a heartbeat.

Ah well, commence the +1-athon!
